Day 6 (18 June): Bullet train to Tokyo

There is very little to report about today.  We caught the bullet train from Kyoto to Tokyo, which we described in the Northern Lights Trip (http://www.marinus.com.au/blog-1/2016/1/3/day-5-1-january-back-to-narita).  For reference, here is Mt Fuji taken from EXACTLY the same location as last time.  Note the colour of the rice paddies compared to winter - verdant green compared to straw-like brown. 

It started to sprinkle with rain as we arrived in Tokyo. We made a quick dash to the antiques market at the International Forum which was lucky because the rain meant all the stall owners were packing up two hours early.  The Navigatrix jumped the barricade, dodged the cars and bought this recycled kimono for JPY1000 (about $12.00).  

The motif at the bottom is embroidered. The garment is silk lined and hand stitched. All this for only $12.00!

We managed to get lost inside Tokyo Station, walking from one side to the other before realising the line to Tokyo Disneyland was back where we started.  There was a kilometre of walking (with luggage) which we did not need to do!  By the time we got to the Disneyland Hotel at Maihama it was pouring with rain.  We got soaked walking the 50 metres from the train to the Welcome Centre where we checked in.  

We are using our Disney Vacation Club points to stay in a beautiful room overlooking the park.  The hotel itself is amazing (in usual Disney style) but the main attraction for us is the proximity to the city, which is only 15 minutes away.
